PlayStation Network Coming Back Online Now

Following the release of Firmware v3.61 earlier this evening, the PlayStation Network is slowing but surely coming back online. For the time being, the services that will currently be accessible include:

  • Sign in for PSN and Qriocity
  • Online game play for PS3 and PSP
  • Music Unlimited if you have a current subscription for PC and PS3
  • Access to third party services such as Netflix, Hulu, Vudu and MLB TV
  • Friendslist
  • Chat functionality
  • Trophy comparison
  • PlayStation Home

The PlayStation Store is not being restored as part of this initial restoration of network services and will be made available again as soon as possible. Kazuo Hirai has also stated in his announcement regarding network service restoration that details for region specific “Welcome Back” packages will be available in the coming days.
